As announced in Hedera’s End of 2019: Message from the Founders, Hedera Hashgraph is launching an initiative to thank its SAFT holders for their support and incentivize network usage and growth. The proposal will provide participating SAFT holders with additional allocations of hbar coins over time in exchange for extending the time period over which their SAFT hbars will be delivered to them.
As a result of the new SAFT offer, Hedera’s estimated hbar release schedule previously published in its Hbar Economics paper is now outdated. As the new expected release schedule will not be known until after the new SAFT offer is closed, as the schedule will depend on many SAFT holders choose to participate in the program. The outdated coin economics whitepaper can be found here.
After the new SAFT offer process is completed, Hedera will update the expected hbar release schedule and publish it in a revised Hbar Economics paper.
